So i have just received my wedding dress that i ordered but the bust is too big, now im a size 8. I got my measurement from David’s bridal and it was 36-21-41 so they ordered a size 8 for me. But i went back couple of days later because i wanted to ask them if i could try on a size 6 of the same dress and i did, it fit me it was a little snug but it wasnt uncomfortable. After that i was thinking of changing the size of my dress but the salesperson said its better to get an size 8 so of course i listen but now i got the dress and like i said the bust is too big, i know you can get those altered but i fell inlove with the top of that dress and i dont want to ruin it. Now i dont know if i should get it altered and risk ruining the details of the top or exchange it for a size 6 and loose weight.

Any good seamstress will be able to alter it without compromising the design. I wouldn’t trust buying a dress that was too small.

They are professionals I personally think it’s best to order bigger and have the dress altered to fit you. They know what they are doing and they won’t ruin your dress

Always order for your biggest measurement. You can alter the bust down pretty easily from an 8 to a 6ish

I have the same issue: I’m very hourglass shaped so I’m a 6 on the waist, 8 bust and 8-10 hips. My seamstress told me to always order the 10 and they’ll pull it in everywhere else to make it fit absolutely perfectly. I say stick with the 8 and get it altered down rather than risk trying to upsize.

My dress was brought in several inches in the bust. Very intricate beadwork and it looked perfect. Have faith in your seamstress.

I haven’t had my dress altered yet but I agree that it makes sense to get it in a bigger size and have it taken in! That way it will fit perfectly in the end. My dress is a size 10 because I need room in the bust, but I will have it taken in considerably everywhere else (I’m closer to a 6 as well). Don’t worry 🙂
